Steamboat Stinger registration opens Friday

Luke Graham

— Registration for the third annual Steamboat Stinger mountain bike race, marathon and half-marathon opens at noon Friday.

The mountain bike race features multiple solo divisions as well as duo divisions for men, women and coed teams. A large part of the mountain bike course's appeal is that 90 percent is on singletrack. The 50-mile ride includes two laps on Emerald Mountain trails.

The marathon and half-marathon follow a similar course as the bike race.

The cost is $75 for the solo mountain bike race and $140 for the duo category. It's $65 for the marathon and $45 for the half-marathon. Those interested in doing the ride and run — the King Sting and Queen Bee categories — can register for $130.

The field will be limited to 500 bike racers on the course and 400 running race participants.
